Governing Law; Venue: 
By using the Website, you agree that applicable federal law and the laws of the state of California, without regard to its conflicts of laws principles will govern these terms of use. [You agree that any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be resolved only in the courts located in San Francisco, California, U.S.A. ]

Dispute Resolution:

PLEASE READ THIS DISPUTE RESOLUTION SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT AND TO HAVE A JURY HEAR YOUR CLAIMS.THIS SECTION CONTAINS PROCEDURES FOR MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.

Scope of the Arbitration Agreement.If Credo cannot resolve any dispute with you regarding the Website, any transaction conducted on the Website or these terms of use, both you and Credo agree that any such dispute will be resolved through binding individual arbitration. Both you and Credo understand and agree to waive the right to sue or go to court to assert or defend our respective rights. However, either you or Credo may bring any individual claim in small claims court consistent with the jurisdictional and dollar limits that may apply, as long as it is brought and maintained as an individual claim. The term “dispute” means any dispute, action, claim, or other controversy between you and Credo, whether in contract, warranty, tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, or any other legal or equitable basis. “Dispute” will be given the broadest possible meaning allowable under law.

Informal Dispute Resolution. Either party asserting a dispute shall first try in good faith to resolve it by providing written notice to the other party describing the facts and circumstances (including any relevant documentation) and allowing the receiving party 30 days in which to respond. Both you andCredo agree that this dispute resolution procedure is a condition precedent which must be satisfied before initiating any arbitration against the other party.

How Arbitration Works. Either party may initiate arbitration, which shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) pursuant to its Consumer Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”), as modified by these Arbitration Provisions. To file an arbitration demand and review the AAA Rules, you can go to the AAA’s website www.adr.org, or call the AAA at (800) 778-7879. In the event the AAA is unavailable or unwilling to hear the dispute,you and Credo will mutually agree to, or the court shall select, another arbitration provider.The arbitration will be conducted by telephone, videoconference, or in-person in the county of your residence (as determined by your billing address on filein your Credo account) as mutually agreed upon by you and Credo. If you live outside the United States, any arbitration will take place in San Francisco, California. Unless the arbitrator finds some or all of your claims to be frivolous, without merit or otherwise non-reimbursable,Credo will pay all filing, administrative, arbitrator and hearing costs up to the amount of $10,000. In determining whether an action is frivolous, the arbitrator may consider whetherCredo offered you a full refund of the sum you paid for any items you purchased, or otherwise offered full relief to you in relation to your individual claim.

Waiver of Right to Bring Class Action and Representative Claims. All arbitrations shall proceed on an individual basis. The arbitrator is empowered to resolve the dispute with the same remedies available in court, however, any relief must be individualized to you and shall not affect any other customer. You andCredo also agree waive the right to assert or participate in any class action lawsuit or class action arbitration, any private attorney general lawsuit or private attorney general arbitration, and any joint or consolidated lawsuit or joint or consolidated arbitration of any kind. If a court decides that the limitations of this paragraph are deemed invalid or unenforceable, any putative class, private attorney general, or representative action must be brought in a court of proper jurisdiction and not in arbitration.

Intellectual Property Disputes. If you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate any of Credo’s intellectual property rights, we may bring suit in any state or federal court in the State of California. You consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in these courts.
